Taking all the wise advice above into consideration, there is some wiggle room I’ve found.
I’m running C11.13401, and have been for the last few years.
Am developing mostly Nettalk webserver apps, but also some plain old desktop exes.
@Bruce 's note about upgrading habits to see all the code around you, matrix style, is a big deal. I’ve found it to be of critical importance in my continued growth as a dev.
And every time I’m zooming with Bruce and go through the embed tree, we have a conversation about the embeditor.
Now. I have a very good (to me) reason why I choose to sometimes (but not always) go through the embed tree.
There is a magical option that forces the embeditor to always be opened (when you go through the tree).
Alongside the “have patience” protocol, being able to open up a tree dialog and see where I’m going - this helps me immensely.
Some of my procs, netwebforms especially, are crazy large - and while I could train myself to think about the exact naming of the place I want to go in that great big old pile of code - I find it easier/quicker to open up the embed tree and open through there.
(Note too you can skip through to embed code in the embeditor, but if you have a lot of embed code in many different places, this loses it’s speed usefulness in my experience)
Because it opens into the embeditor anyway, which is always where you want to be (always).
In the last few years I have not had a single crash when opening the embeditor through the embed tree (and strictly adhering to the patience “single click at a time” protocol, alongside another one - only open 1-2 apps at a time).
Have had other crashes, but mainly to do with trying to have too many apps open at the same time.
Right-click vew source is my main investigation tool, it’s simpler to get in for sure.
But sometimes, and you need to go through the furnace of experiencing the crashes to figure it out, whether this will work for you - sometimes I find it more helpful to go through the embed tree (as long as you are going to the embeditor itself).
That’s my 2c.
